Similar to red rocket ale. Good stuff. I think I prefer the red rocket a little more, but a decent contender.

The Bodega, Bushwick tap ($6): Pour a mahogany brown colour with a beige head. Aroma is rye, spice, a healthy dosage of hops, some dirt, and a bit of toffee. Taste is pretty nice. Nice amounts of rye malt balanced against the nice west coast hoppiness. Kind of bitter. Sessionable and well-balanced.
